Russian Siberian peasant, a monk and mystic who became a great favorite of the court of the last Czar, exercising an undue influence. Introduced to Nicholas and Alexandra in 1907 to help their hemophiliac son, he was the only one who was able to successfully stop the boy's bleeding attacks and he soon gained the reputation of being a saint and healer. By 1911 he was thoroughly ensconced in royal favor. Rasputin met the tsar and his wife for the first time on 11/01/1905 OS in Peterhof at 4:00 pm. (P.70 quoted from the tsar's diary.)
Born in a village in Siberia, he left his home, wife and three kids in 1891 to follow a holy vision. He preached a doctrine of sin and the need to be saved, stressing the evil of the sins of the flesh. He not only gained a ministerial following but the noblewomen succumbed easily to his rough sexual approach. Bearded, with burning eyes, unwashed and licentious, away from the court he indulged in uninhibited debauchery. He lived the rest of his life apart from his family. His daughter wrote that he had a 13" phallus, which he apparently put to good use.
With powerful enemies in a court seething with intrigue, he was invited to a dinner by a few of the aristocracy on the night of 12/16/1916. With copious draughts of poisoned wine, he did no more than sleep well. The assassination plot continued with another attempt that failed the following night, and it was not until 12/20 OS (12/31 NS) that they succeeded in killing Rasputin, by drowning him.

Lina Accurso writes on 2/1998 that she saw an A&E biography on 11/25/1997 in which Rasputin's church records read January 10, 1869 (OS).
Filipe Ferreira quotes BBC-Timewatch documentary of 6/08/1994, "The Real Rasputin," which showed a recently discovered birth record with the information of January 10, 1869. Ferreira wrote to the Rasputin Museum asking if a time is known, but there was no answer. The same date is given in Edvard Radzinsky's "Rasputin: The Last Word," Phoenix, London, 2000, pp 30-32 (copy in LMR files).
Becky Altschuler writes, " Grigory Efimovich Rasputin was born in the Tyumen district of the province of Tobol in the village of Pokrovskoe...... A census of the residents of the village of Pokrovskoe was found in the Tyumen archive, and appearing next to the name Grigory Rasputin in the column for 'year, month, and day of birth' is the date 10 January 1869." Book notes this is the day of Saint Grigory for whom he was named. This is from Edvard Radzinsky "The Rasputin File," Doubleday, 2000. pp. 24-25. A notation in the front of the book states that all dates are from the Old Style calendar."
Rasputin met the tsar and his wife for the first time on 1 November 1905 in Peterhof at 4:00 pm. This is on p. 70 quoted from the tsar's diary. I believe Peterhof is an area ( city, village) and not a palace name although I am not positive.This is also O.S..
Sally Davis writes in Transit September 1999 that Soviet records have confirmed the same date and place in two books: 10 January 1869 OS (January 22 NS) in Pokrovskoye in Tobolsk Province, 57 N.16, 66 E.50.
Dorothy Kovach on ACT internet, 4/2001, adds, "The new book by Edvard Radzinsky, "The Rasputin File" verifies once again his birthdate as Jan 10, 1869 (OS) in the village Pokrovskoe on the banks of the Tura, province of Tobol, Siberia 57N16 ~ 66E50. The date was taken from a census of the residents of the village of Pokrovskoe which was found in the Tyumen archive. It is the day of Saint Grigory, for whom he was named. The dates in the encyclopedias are wrong. She adds that "Much new material coming from the Extraordinary Commission of the Provisional Government...13th Section re Rasputin of 1917. This had been lost for most of the century until turning up at Sotheby's; purchased by
Mstislav Rostropovitch and given as a gift to the author. All dates in the book are given in (OS) unless otherwise indicated: five hundred pages of documents in the file.
"The immense interest in Rasputin has continued unabated both in Russia and abroad. This book answers many questions."
The time of 2:00 AM is an approximate rectification by LMR to put Scorpio on the ASC, late Leo on the MC.
(Formerly, AA in 5/1943 claimed possession of a photostat of a letter from Rasputin's daughter that gives January 10, 1870 OS, January 23, 1871 NS, "no known hour. The biography by his daughter Maria read, "The night of January 23, 1871, a meteor turned downward and before it hit the earth, he was born." (Note that the daughter's date recognizes the OS date and Russian Calendar year. However the style correction properly adds 12 days; by giving January 23 NS, the daughter either has calculated in error, or the birth was after midnight of the 10th.)
(Formerly a variety of data were given: Manly Hall had 6/17/1872, 10:42 PM, Tobolsk, Russia in Astrological Review 3/1935. AFA Summer/1968 quotes Kosmobiologie for 7/20/1872, 2:31 AM, Prokovskoie, Russia. PC quotes Brunhubner in his Pluto book for 7/29/1871, 9:45 PM. An article in the Los Angeles Times on 9/25/1978 gave 1871; World Book Encyclopedia gives 1872-1916.)
